WWII Thriller in the school of EYE OF THE NEEDLE by Ken Follet!

WWII Thriller in the school of EYE OF THE NEEDLE by Ken Follet!

DECEMBER '41 unfolds day-by-day, chapter-by-chapter, from 12/8/1941 to Christmas Eve, 1941. Today is December 23, so here's the opening of that chapter:

Martin Browning’s first words that morning were “My God.” He
picked up the paper, saw the photo on the front page, said it in English, and thought it in German. Mein Gott.
The prime minister of Great Britain was standing beside the president of the United States, above this headline: churchill in unity talks at white house.
In an amazing act of secrecy and bravery, Winston Churchill and his staff had crossed the Atlantic—they weren’t saying how—to
confer with Franklin Roosevelt over the conduct of the war.
Martin Browning didn’t believe in God, but he believed in fate. And fate had now offered him an even greater moment on the stage of history. It had also given him a new surge of confidence. He would kill them both. Fate demanded it, no matter what the FBI might know, no matter the repercussions of Agent Carter’s death.
He gazed across Lafayette Square and imagined them enjoying breakfast in the White House, the two greatest enemies of the Reich, both planning to give speeches on Christmas Eve, both making targets of themselves. And he would kill them both. . . .

“Don’t worry,” she said. “So far my record of coming back alive is one hundred percent.” ~ Bianca, THE ULTIMATUM, now only $3.99 for a limited time. OR you can get the complete series - all three books - THE ULTIMATUM, THE MOSCOW DECEPTION, THE FIFTH DOCTRINE - for only $14.99 in ebook as a boxed set! If you’re looking for something fun to read over the holidays - or a great last minute Christmas present - this could be it. Fast and funny, with a twist you won’t see coming, these books and this heroine are some of my very favorites. (Link to both options in the comments.)

America's top mystery book critics break down the year in crime

The L.A. Times praises Lisa Scottoline's novel "Eternal".

"I think it was gutsy of Lisa Scottoline to publish historical fiction this year. As she’s said in interviews, she’s wanted to write in that genre for decades. I enjoyed “Eternal” (set in fascist Italy), and I admired the fact that Scottoline hasn’t let her enormous success box her in."

Five reviewers of crime fiction recap dominant trends in 2021, including a profusion of diverse narratives, genre crossovers and, of course, true crime.

Waiting list for LBF as rollovers and reduced space leave some firms struggling | The Bookseller

Bad policy may cause many agents to work remotely as opposed to going to the LBF in London. It's costly to do so and working remotely over the past two years has proven very successful and a major savings.

Instituting policies that are problematic is an error by the LBF. The LBF over the years has built up the International Rights Center from it's beginning and now these policies by the LBF are going to reverse many of the gains made over the years.

We've seen what has happened at he ABA in the States. Fewer publishers and for many a much smaller presence.

Instead of enacting poor policy the LBF should be designing policy to encourage a return to the fair by agents.

Some agents and publishers who chose not to roll over their London Book Fair bookings from 2020 have reported struggling to get tables at next year’s event, with organisers admitting there is now a waiting list amid high demand and construction works at the Olympia venue.

"From executive leadership to frontline managers to independent contributors, we found most people want their company to do more to encourage allyship. And interestingly, when allyship is encouraged in the workplace, people tend to want more allyship encouragement."

Recently, I contributed an article to Training Industry to share how to develop a culture of allyship in an organization. It's allies who build empathy and take action to create a work environment where colleagues of all identities can thrive.
